Introduction

Being able bodied we don't consider the disable people anything. We don't think about their feelings, their view of life and their motives. I personally feel that we're unlucky not to have the tendency and power to look into their way of life and the challenges they have to face. For us, life is a bed of roses yet we cry for more comforts. We're ungrateful. Being normalized we can't envision life to be any other way. But, Christopher Nolan gives our mind a thought about those disable people. He opens our eyes towards a direction where we we are not willing to see. In his novel, Under the Eye of The Clock, published in 1987, Nolan excellently portrays a picture of his own life.
